The title will also be available for early access players four days earlier on September 28, and those looking to get a jump start on the competition will want to know when the Forza Horizon 4 pre-load date on their chosen platform is. Here’s our guide on when it’s available.
Forza Horizon 4 Pre-Load Date: When is the Forza Horizon 4 Pre-Load Date?

Forza Horizon 4 Pre-Load Date: How Big is the Download?
Given the size of Forza Horizon 4’s files, you’ll want to pre-load it. The title comes in at a whopping 63.73GB on PC, according to ResetEra, while the Xbox One X isn’t far behind on 60.19GB. Finally, those playing on the normal Xbox One can download Forza Horzion 4 for 56.13GB.
It’s likely that the graphical intensity on PCs and then Xbox One X is the reason behind this Forza Horizon 4 file size. Asset quality will be much better on these two than the Xbox One due to their processing power, so make sure that you aren’t caught stuck in the mud when Forza Horizon 4 releases in a fortnight’s time. If you’re still on the fence about buying it, you can try Forza Horizon 4’s demo, which is available now.
